Niladri, 04 Dec 2010What does Nokia N8 have which Galaxy S doesn't? Tell me any point except the 12MP camera and S... moreIf wave is not on the list, dont blame me nor gsmarena, but blame samsung for not using bada os in their most of their phones and making it well known. If bada is as great as you say, why dont samsung use produce less android and windows 7 phones and more of bada OS phones. Why arent apps pouring in like what android, symbian and most recently windows phone 7 os are experiencing right now?

Ok, HDMI port, xenon flash, USB OTG, free navigation for life, pentaband support, class 33 gprs/edge, etc, etc. (to galaxy s fans, i'm not saying that the galaxy s is bad, just the differences between the galaxy s and the n8)
"BLEH... It doesn't even support videos over 2GB (ofcourse unless u r hacking and stressing that weak 650MHz processor and kill it in less than a year!)"
i have a blueray version of up running at 720p at it only just 700mb. Why would i want a movie which is larger than 2gb (thats 1/4 of my 8gb memory card) where i can compress it on my pc and make it smaller. The reason the n8 is at thrid place cause it has a HDMI port. Isn't it good enough already that your samsung galaxy s got first???
'I am not going deeper into Music clarity. Well, people having a Wave knows that very well! And talking about this here means an insult to N8.'
Why are you bashing the n8 when it is not even on the music category? Also test done by gsmarena shows that the n8 has a very good music quality output, go see the review yourself.
And yeah, no need to insult those inferior or improper phones like THAT! Show SOME respect.

I am also complaining about the costly Apple iPhone. It doesn't deserve those positions.
BUT BUT BUT
I am STRONGLY AGAINST N8. It literally "STEALS" the position of Wave at GSMArena.
I agree with Camera, but others, including video playback, Wave is best. Try it, it can play videos upto 5000kbps very smoothly. YES, 5000 kbps. Does Nokia N8 do so??? BLEH... It doesn't even support videos over 2GB (ofcourse unless u r hacking and stressing that weak 650MHz processor and kill it in less than a year!)
I am not going deeper into Music clarity. Well, people having a Wave knows that very well! And talking about this here means an insult to N8.
When other smartphone are getting the limelight, nobody gives a shit about it. But when the n8 shows up, people start to think that gsmarena is biased towards nokia.
Galaxy S and iphone4 receive more spotlight in this article people, why dont you complain about that?
at first i though this would be a nice article. But at the end.... I mean come on gsmarena. It seems now to me that samsung doesn't have any other cellphone without Galaxy S. Where is wave? Where is champ when the fact comes to cheap touch phones. Why not samsung galaxy 525 when the fact comes to cheap smartphones? Where is samsung ch@t when the fact comes to QWERTY with a good connectivity. I don't really trust that you guys are neutral anymore. You guys are completely nokia biased. And i really don't like the ending. Maybe it's funny but in my opinion don't you think this is too much (i'm not an iFan)? By the way if you reply me in my comment i won't reply you back cause i don't chat here. I just posted my personal opinion. :-)
Wasted a bit more time reading through this ridiculous review..
Wave S8500 is not in- Music playback, Gaming (oh, only iPhone, why??), Video Playback, and Video recording.
W H A T T H E H E L L??
Explain that authors.
Hello, well, hope I am not wrong, but it seems you guys are absolutely against Samsung Wave GT S8500.
I know there won't be any reply from the editors to my post but think about it my friends.
I admit it doesn't have a 12MP camera, but that doesnt mean it should not be in the list of top 3 videocam mobiles.
I would give it a 2nd spot hands-down.
Plus what about multimedia, Wave sounds as good as iPod and plays as good as any top notch video player! And N8? A runner up without Wave on LIST? What do u mean by that?
N8 N8 N8! N8 and N8!! All the way...
And second. I read in N8's article that, N8 is second phone having DivX/Xvid support after Omnia. OMG. if thats true, then I think Wave doesn't support it? According to u guys?
Hmmmmm... who knows, maybe N8 has funded u more than enough. For N8's promotions. But give Wave a bit of respect dear GSMArena authors and editors! Don't run behind the money
Cool article,at least it's not biased to any brands,perfectly showing us the condition of global smartphone.
The way to explain things here is simple yet deep and entertaining,bravo GSMArena
Anonymous, 04 Dec 2010Hey guys help me out , should i buy Nokia n8 now or wait for n9. I use mobile just for texting... moreThe Nokia N8 is just perfect if you want a camera phone.You said that you are interested just in Nokia phones and I think that the N8 is just the best camera phone out there.But if you are not using you phone as a camera then there is a lot of other phones..Still there are some rumors that Nokia is shuting down it's Symbian division because of poor reviews and are going on Maemo.The N8 is the best but if you are willing to wait maybe the N9 will come with Maemo onboard...
Well done guys! Great article. The beginin was funny to (that thing with "a pat on the back) :).
nice article especially th last one..................................helllo hello...helo...what...hell....
Awesome article...the ending seriously made my day!
Samsung Wave should have been included in the music phone and in the Bang for the Buck.
Otherwise great article. Especially the ending
What a funny article...
I'm gonna call santa with the Iphone he gave me..
Isn't the Samsung Galaxy Tab supposed to be on the top list of screen size? It's also a phone.
